This is the rare Combe Hay Pushme-Pullyou horse, rarely seen these days.
Because of it'’s ability to hide behind trees and pretend to be two horses.

In our days with Bath Hospital Radio, Wendy organised a regular Summer Fair in Kingston Parade for a few years.
This was a typical one, it soon became a major fund-raising event.

This is my Daughter Helen.
When given the remote control, this is how she took her own picture.
She is now a married woman with her own daughter, but can still do this.

Another Panorama takes with a 3 year old Fuji 6800 zoom,
and joined up with Autostitch.

Tuesday, April 19, 2005

Just found the best free panorama program I have ever seen, it's made by students at the University of British Columbia.
You just dump the pictures you want to join up into it, and it sorts and joins them.
This is from five frames of the waterfall at the bottom of our garden.

A white baby rat.

I was shown this 3 week old baby rat today.

Sam’'s new Shop.
It’'s in Euro Disney really.

Spotted today living on a sunny bank close to home,
a Common or Viviparous Lizard. Length: 15 cm - 16 cm

I don'’t know who he was, I found him in a puddle.
By the look of my shoes it was a long time ago.

African style sunset that just needs a leopard in the tree.
But you don'’t get many leopards in Peasedown St John.

I couldn'’t resist putting this up, I suggested Strawberries, and Wendy wanted Apple.
This was the compromise, photographed with a three-year-old three megapixel Fuji 6800.
Just shows you don'’t need to use the latest 8 megapixel camera to take sharp pictures.

Strawberries and cream for tea.

Tabitha tucks in.
